#POCtober: Watch Kôji Shiraishi’s “The Curse” (ノロイ Noroi)

A true cut above most found footage horror, Kôji Shiraishi’s 2005 opus “The Curse” is unique for its excellent writing and acting. Shiraishi’s unironic embrace of documentary style lends itself easily to a horror narrative that is both lengthy and complex. The result is a deceptively workmanlike approach where the bizarre and supernatural are layered into the ordinary using moments, glimpses into weirdness, all deftly laid together. In a word: Wow.
